OnGuard Online – Concise Internet Safety Videos from the FTC

OnGuard Online is a series of sixteen videos from the Federal Trade Commission. The videos provide concise lessons about topics in Internet Safety. I discovered the series while looking for a video about public wi-fi security (or lack thereof) to share with a friend of mine who spends a lot of time on a local coffee shop’s wi-fi network. Besides wi-fi network security OnGuard Online covers topics like avoiding malware, recognizing phishing scams, and responsible sharing on social media. The video is embedded below.

The OnGuard Online video about wi-fi security is a good one for students who are taking school-issued laptops, Chromebooks, or tablets home with them and eventually using them on public wi-fi networks.
